Melissa here!

Hi there!  I’m Melissa, a self diagnosed dyslexic, wannabe photographer, wanderlust and science nerd with hobby ADD as my husband would say.  I have to admit, I do have a bit of obsessive compulsive behaviour.  In years past, I’ve had my hand in chocolate making, written a food blog and recently I’ve gotten into crocheting and opened my own Etsy shop, all within a month of learning to crochet.  Crazy, I know!
I always believed that I would have kids, but when the time came (after years of marriage and exploring different parts of the world), I wasn’t so sure simply because I was pretty happy with the way things were.  I already had a loving husband, a dog, a home of my own and the freedom to travel whenever I wished.  What more did I need?  Now, 10 months after baby was born, I couldn’t imagine life without her.  She has brought such joy into our lives from the moment she arrived.  Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been easy.  We’ve had our share of issues with breastfeeding and sleep and everyday has its challenges.  Most of the time, I feel like the inadequate unkempt mommy, who only takes her kid to storytime or mommy groups once a week, who doesn’t have her kid enrolled in baby sign class and didn’t get onto daycare waitlists right after I found out I was pregnant.  I constantly feel unprepared and like I’m “just winging it”.  My sink (and counters) is always full, figuratively and literally.  I rely heavily on the advice of mommies that came before me, be it friends or mommy groups on social media.  On this blog, I hope to share some of my experiences as I stumble my way through motherhood as well as learn from you awesome mommies out there.
